Support Us

Magog Down is owned by a local Charity, The Magog Trust. Annual running costs are around £75,000. Income to cover these costs comes from various sources – Friends’ subscriptions, car parking fees, farming, land grants and income from the investment fund. You can support the Trust in a variety of ways: by becoming a Friend and paying a small yearly subscription; by helping with vital ongoing maintenance of the Down; joining the group who open and close the car park gate every day; assisting with publicity; or via a donation to help with the conservation of the site.

Volunteers play a vital role in the running of Magog Down – helping with conservation tasks, opening and closing the car park daily, getting involved in writing articles for local magazines and social media.
